In case you forgot, we thought we'd give you a heads-up that Amazon's new Kindle Fire HD is officially available today - if you want the 7-inch, 16GB version. It's packing a 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP4460 processor, a 1280x800 display with advanced anti-glare tech, and a set of stereo speakers that really do blow away any other slate on the market. For a more complete look at the HD 7, check out our hands-on (with a comparison to the Nexus 7), and our original announcement post.


The 32GB iteration of the 7-inch, though, won't be launching until October 25th. And the one you probably actually want, the $300 Kindle Fire 8.9, won't be trotting out until November 20th.

    Just for the sake of pure journalism...

      What is the purpose in disclosing something that, as you have so adequately pointed out, is public information? There is nothing to "disclose" - millions of websites, journalistic or otherwise, use Amazon product referral links. When you start seeing us toss in random links to kitchen dinette sets in articles about Android tablets, we can have a discussion about "pure journalism."
